Pair of Slipware Trail Beakers
This pair of terracotta beakers were probably made in continental Europe at some point in the second half of the 20th Century. They have no backstamp or markings that indicate their origin so this is something of a hunch, but I have seen similar decoration on works originating in Hungary.
The decoration is a combination of control and release, the glaze is partly allowed to do its own thing and drip randomly but its placing on the vessels in the process of making control this randomness to a certain extent.
They would look great on a mantelpiece as short vases or could be used on a desk as a pencil pot.
The pieces have a few chips to the rim which are more noticeable in the close up photographs than they are in actuality.
Diameter at rim: 8.8cm
